Now it is time for a bit of remedial work again, especially in the area of the overgrown "dwarf" conifers on the right hand side in front of the bank.
Rockeries are a lot of work. John Woolman (seen here with his wife Edith & grandson John) built the first rockery.
Some plants grow out of proportion and less vigorous plants get lost and in 1973 the rockery was re-planted.
My brother John re-landscaped the rockery and also the garden in front of the house in 1992
